General Multiplexed Interleaver

Permute input symbols using set of shift registers with specified delays


Convolutional sublibrary of Interleaving

  • General Multiplexed Interleaver block


The General Multiplexed Interleaver block permutes the symbols in the input signal. Internally, it uses a set of shift registers, each with its own delay value.

This block accepts a scalar or column vector input signal, which can be real or complex. The input and output signals have the same sample time.

The block can accept the data types int8, uint8, int16, uint16, int32, uint32, boolean, single, double, and fixed-point. The output signal has the same data type as the input signal.


Interleaver delay (samples)

A column vector listing the number of symbols that fit into each shift register. The length of this vector is the number of shift registers. (In sample-based mode, it can also be a row vector.)

Initial conditions

The values that fill each shift register at the beginning of the simulation.

If Initial conditions is a scalar, then its value fills all shift registers. If Initial conditions is a column vector, then each entry fills the corresponding shift register. (In sample-based mode, Initial conditions can also be a row vector.) If a given shift register has zero delay, then the value of the corresponding entry in the Initial conditions vector is unimportant.
